I Can't Believe

By Bruce Clifford

I canít believe all you have been through.
Itís so hard to conceive how you fell out of the blue.
I canít believe there was ever a me-and-you.

† I canít reconcile how anyone could do.
All those hurtful things that have happened to you.
Your casual smile is a memory Iíve always kept.

Within the blink of an eye, the years left me with a love I canít forget.
I canít believe how anyone could cause you pain.
Itís like make-believe in the chaos of thunder and rain.

† I canít believe all you have been through
. Itís so hard to see how anyone could do this to you.
I canít believe what my heart is telling me to do.

† Iíve often wondered about what could have been.
Have you ever thought about how life would have happened
If we had found a place to begin?

† I canít believe all the hurt you have been through.
Itís too hard to see how you came to this platitude.
I canít believe there was never a time I havenít thought of you.
